Redditor Sparked94 claims to have found a photo on 4Chan where one anon looks exactly like Christian Bale.
The anon apparently dressed up as Patrick Bateman, Bale’s character in American Psycho. The resemblance is uncanny and we would be obligated to call this a photoshop job if it weren’t for a few things.
The anon’s eyebrows and nose seem slight bigger, and his face a little wider. He’s also missing Bale’s wart-thing on the bridge of his nose near his eye.
What do you guys think? Photoshop job or have we found Christian Bale’s doppelgänger?
People are becoming so good at Photoshop these days that I feel like I need to expect them like I do with designer purses. I mean, yeah sometimes there are photos that are just obviously photoshopped that it’d be silly to think they’re real at all (i.e. sharks swimming in a flooded subway station). But then, there are those clever Photoshop jobs that make it sometimes difficult to distinguish it’s authenticity.
Whether or not this photo of Pete Wentz is real or not, just take a look at Bruno Mars in the background obviously fangirling over the Fall Out Boy bassist. He’s just like, “OHMYGERD. LOOK! A REAL FAMOUS PERSON WALKING DOWN THE STREET. NOOOO, REALLY?” while his friend doesn’t seem to care as much.
But will his fangirling skills ever top our queen Jennifer Lawrence’s own freakout over Jack Nicholson? I think not.
Sorry, Grumpy Cat but you’ve been replaced by your human doppelgänger.
While we doubt she’s as fun and condescending as you are, we do like the fact that hey, she’s someone’s grandma. She’s probably given that lucky person loads of cash like any grandma would. What do you have to offer us, Grumpy Cat? Catnip? Sorry, not as enticing.
Thanks to The Frogman (seriously, why are you so funny?), we now have Grumpy Grandma to ruin all the fun.
It’s pretty much a given that the boys of One Direction are a handsome bunch. With hundreds of girls all over the world wanting to steal a hug or a kiss with the British lads, one would think the One Direction craze would never die down.
But what happens when the good-looking young men grow old…say 50 or 60 years later? Do you think they would age as gracefully as George Clooney?
While it would be weird to think so long down the road, I really couldn’t help but wonder how to boys would look as older men. So with the help of the internet and a photo transformer, I found some digitally altered photos of the boys looking very aged.
The Internet basically exploded the other day when Miley revealed her drastically different haircut on Twitter. The cut is being described as a mashup between Twiggy, Tinker Bell and Harry Potter‘s Draco Malfoy. Not everyone can pull it off like Miley, so Pop Crush decided to play around with Photoshop and see how other celebs look with her new do.
The result? Most people can’t pull off the Miley Cyrus haircut.

It all started when 14-year-old Julia Bluhm petitioned Seventeen magazine to stop Photoshopping their models back in April. While Seventeen magazine maintains they don’t use the digital tool to alter faces or body shapes, Editor-in-Chief Ann Shoket published a “Body Peace Treaty” in their August issue. While Seventeen will still use Photoshop to get rid of wrinkles on clothing, misplaced bra straps and the odd zit, the magazine promises to be more transparent and publish the before and after shots on their tumblr page.
Now, the attention has turned to Teen Vogue. Sixteen-year-old Carina Cruz and 17-year-old Emily Stydahar have started an online petition to make Teen Vogue print a similar promise in their pages. The younger sister of the magazine bible says they, too, don’t retouch photos. While that’s all fine and dandy, the girls want the magazine editors acknowledge their practices in the magazine for all their readers to see.
The online petition has just 28,000 online signatures. Cruz and Stydahar also hope to stage a mock runway today outside of Teen Vogue’s offices with “models” holding hand-written messages on dry erase boards.
While asking for a no-Photoshop policy is unrealistic, asking for transparency isn’t. Here’s to hoping the magazine’s high powered editors take notice. This is 21st century Girl Power at its finest.
Here’s some Beyoncé to get you in the Girl Power mood:
There’s nothing worse than uploading photos from your shiny new digital camera, and realizing your snaps didn’t turn out as great you’d imagined. Thankfully, the digital age has given photographers the power to repair and retouch their ugly ducklings.
Readily available programs like Apple’s iPhoto and Google’s Picasa come bundled with retouching tools designed for beginners. While handy, these tools merely scratch the surface of what is capable with the grand-daddy of editing suites, Adobe’s Photoshop.
Photoshop has been the gold standard in image manipulation for more than a decade, but its seemingly limitless capabilities can be overwhelming for the everyday snapper. Enter Alien Skin’s Image Doctor 2, a powerful all-in-one Photoshop retouching plug-in designed for both beginners and professionals. It takes some of the most complex and time-consuming Photoshop processes and bundles them into a bite-sized, easy to use plug-in.
Image Doctor 2’s first photographic antidote is the Conceal Blemish filter. This is perhaps the most powerful portion of Alien Skin’s software. Amateur photographers often try to remove facial blemishes manually with Photoshop’s clone and blur tools. The end result usually resembles a horribly distorted Japanese anime character.
Image Doctor makes facial retouching remarkably straightforward. Users can select special settings for removing moles, pimples, stains, and wrinkles, all which work with astonishing effectiveness. Rather than just focus on the blemished skin, the software evaluates the surrounding skin tones and shadows of the entire face. Apple’s iPhoto employs a similar technique, but executes the removal with an unsightly blur. Image Doctor repairs problem areas with a superbly uniform aesthetic and minimal blur. The resulting images look flawless and, more importantly, natural. This is sure to blow the minds of amateurs and save professionals countless hours in the edit suite.
The Skin Softener filter takes skin retouching to the next level. Modern digital cameras have a nasty habit of accentuating oily patches and wrinkles with harsh flashes. This Skin Softener is like a virtual application of makeup. It evens out wrinkles and ousts oil with ease. A manual application of this technique with Photoshop’s brushes can take hours. For pros, the skin softener is an invaluable filter.
The Smart Fill option is another brilliant time saver. Sometimes, great photos are ruined by obtrusive objects. With nothing more than a simple selection, Image Doctor removes these unwanted objects and blends the selection to look as natural as possible. Before Smart Fill, a similar task would take hours with Photoshop’s clone stamp tool.
The great thing about Image Doctor is that it features a relatively flat learning curve without compromising on beefy options for the professionals. Photographers with limited Photoshop experience can jump right in and retouch their photos with excellent built-in presets while the pros can create their own batch of expert settings to meet their retouching needs.
The Image Doctor plug-in can be had for $200 US. That’s chump change for an established photographer, but might scare away amateur snappers with smaller pockets.
